Competitive becoming CRNA

  1. 0
    I recently changed my career to nursing through my experience I have become interested in becoming a CRNA. My undergrad GPA was only a 3.3 but 4.0 for a general MSN. I am pursing the steps indicated to become a CRNA. I was curious if anyone has taken this less traditional route, and if so will the poor GPA in undergrad make you less competitive?

    I also have another non-nursing Bachelors degree and contacted schools regarding this. I suggest contacting the specific schools you're interested in. When I contacted certain schools, they all had different ways of calculating GPA. Some said they take your ADN and BSN GPA, some just your BSN. If you have another degree, some take into account every single class you've taken while others only take your nursing degree GPAs. I'm sure if you email them, they'd be happy to answer your questions. Sorry, I know this is probably not the answer you were looking for but I think it would be more beneficial for you to contact schools directly.

    Your GPA is competitive. But your GPA is not the only aspect of your application that CRNA schools look at. They also look at your application, your personal statement, LOR, GRE, etc. etc.
